Liscannor, Co. Clare (See Map Below)


The Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare, are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction with a magical vista that captures the hearts of up to one million visitors every year. They stretch for 8km (5 miles), as the crow flies, along the Wild Atlantic Way and reach 214m (702 feet) at their highest point.

From the Cliffs on a clear day you can see the Aran Islands and Galway Bay, as well as the Twelve Pins and the Maum Turk mountains in Connemara, Loop Head to the south and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands in Kerry.

In the ancient Gaelic language, the word Mothar means 'ruined fort' and a 1st century BC fort stood where Moher tower now stands. Therefore the Cliffs of Moher means 'the cliffs of the ruined fort' and, although there is no trace remaining of this two thousand year old fort, it has given its name to the famous cliffs.


Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience

The Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience is located almost midway along these spectacular cliffs. It is the site of:

  • The environmentally friendly visitor centre, set into the hillside.
  • O’Brien’s Tower - the 19th century viewing tower.
  • 800 metres of protected cliff side pathways, viewing areas and steps.
O'Brien's Tower

O’Brien’s Tower, at the Cliffs, is now open to visitors following a period of remedial works. The tower, which stands near the highest point of the Cliffs, was built in 1835, by local landlord Sir Cornelius O’Brien, a descendent of Brian Ború, as a viewing point for 19th century tourists. Over the years O’Brien’s Tower has become a well-loved feature of a visit to the Cliffs. There is a small charge to gain access to the rooftop viewing platform. 


The Cliffs of Moher are easily accessed by road from Shannon Airport (60 minutes), Galway (75 minutes), Ennis (46 minutes), Limerick (75 minutes) and from the Tarbert to Killimer Ferry (75 minutes). Dublin is approximately 3 hours and 20 minutes via Limerick.

Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience Location:

Wildlife at the Cliffs - one of the Natural Wonders of the World

Nature’s wonders surround you at the Cliffs of Moher - whether it is the cliffs themselves formed over 300 million years ago; the mighty Atlantic Ocean; or the birds, plants and other wildlife that inhabit the cliffs and the sea. There are plenty of natural wonders to be enjoyed there. 

The famous Cliffs are home to over 30,000 pairs of seabirds during the nesting season from April to July, including the well-recognised and much loved Puffin. An abundance of marine life can be found in the waters directly off the Cliffs from minute life-forms to the second largest fish on the planet - the whale shark. Or, you may be lucky enough to see one of the herd of wild goats that roam the cliffs.
